How can I get rid of that yellowish color in our traffic paths?
Asphalt "molecular fusing" is the major culprit causing that yellowish color in your traffic paths. Coal-tar substances that become absorbed into everyone's shoes from parking lots have oily resins that will bond into carpet fibers. Over time, and especially in high traffic, pivot areas, main halls, stairs, lobbies, near restrooms and water fountains, elevators, etc., transfer occurs from foot traffic.
Because the molecular structure of these resins are similar to the molecular components of by-products that go into the manufacturing of most synthetic fibers, a fusion process occurs that in time will gradually and permanently discolor carpets! Full damage restoration from this usually yellowish hue is not possible; however, it can be minimized through frequent preventive cleaning measures, as well as periodic applications of protectors such as DuPont Teflon. Teflon develops an invisible barrier much like a floor finish that helps prevent the resins from coming into contact with the fibers.
Another source of yellowing in some carpets originates from the use of optical brighteners by carpet cleaners. Dalton abides by manufacturer's warranty recommendations. We know the short-term appearance benefit will damage your carpet long-term, while voiding product warranties!
